A Youth Leader in the Niger Delta Region, Engr. Don Dickson Ogugu has rubbished reports from certain group of people with alleged fictitious name CENTRAL YOUTH BODY in Warri, Escravos, Forcados and Burutu, making the rounds that pipeline surveillance slots meant for indigenes are given out to non indigenes is not true.
Engineer Don Dickson Ogugu who is also one of the Coordinators handling the job in a reaction to the said publication stated that the job slots are handled by bonafide indigenes of the said area including himself from Diebiri-Batan Community in the ancient oil rich Diebiri kingdom, Warri South West Local government area of Delta State.
He described the publication as a misleading one and thus implored the alleged fictitious body to verify facts before going to the social media.
“I cannot sell out what belongs to my people to strangers as a true son from the region, as my main course is to liberate my region as a core Niger Deltan from the creeks” he said.
Ogugu had appealed to the Federal and State Governments as well as concerned stakeholders and leaders from the region to wade into the issue by warning the said unrecognized body to refrain from circulating fake publications without verifying facts that can equally cause disunity in the riverian communities of Delta.
In his words: “You are recommending GLOBAL WEST NIGERIA LTD, On the stand that we are Non-indigenes working with OMS, I don’t and will never have any issue with my own leader and elder brother’s company.
“The problem you are facing here is inconsistencies and plasframe, you should have come out open that you want Global West Nig Ltd to be in charge of the Surveillance work, instead of painting us as non-indigenes.
“I am not the one awarding contracts either giving out Surveillance Slots, I stand to correct you that OMS SURVEILLANCE work is been handled by well recognized Son’s from the CREEKS.
“Moreso, if GLOBAL WEST NIGERIA LTD, Take charge of any Surveillance work that cut across my communities, you cannot shot change or deprived my people of our right as host in the RIGHT OF WAY.”
Don Dickson emphasized that, “He is not that cheap type of person, neither is he that hungry and greedy person that will stoop so low and downgrade himself to be sponsored by someone, am a man of my word, I stand for the truth, I don’t know CAPT HOSAN from Adam’s, but I must tell the world his good deeds and bad if there is, not as you are forcefully trying to hijack our surveillance work by blackmailing us as Non-indigenes.”
He also called on the Inspector General of Police IGP and other relevant security authorities to warn the said body and their cohorts if there is any attempt or form of vandalism on the TRANS FORCADOS PIPLINE (TFP) and NNPC/PPMC WARRI-ESCRAVOS DELIVERY LINE, that Government should hold this self parading fictitious name CENTRAL YOUTH BODY responsible.
He said “If there is any form of vandalism, the appreciate authorities should hold my Elder brother HON BULLET OTUARO, responsible, by trying to cause bridge of peace and breakdown of law threatening our lives not to carry out our surveillance security patrol work in our various communities right of way, more so by referring to us as non-indegines.
“Our host communities are enjoying the work and peaceful coexistence with OMS, as the Government and Security agencies can attest to the relative peace in the region, as there have been maximum production of crude oil supply ever since OMS was awarded the surveillance work, it is largely accredited to the surveillance workers we have employed from the host communities.
“if there is any doubt, investigation team should be set up by the asset owner,HERITAGE on the TFP AND NNPC/PPMC in conjunction with SECURITY AGENCIES to find out for themselves
“In this modern era, it is obvious to believe that, people are denying and calling his or her brother strangers in their own land, I can’t deny my name, land, origin, communities and place of work, as a proud Niger Delta son.” Don Dickson stated.
